This matter was fully threshed out, and statements were made pro and con, and I do not hesitate to say that there was by no means any satisfactory evidence that this appliance had been determined upon as suitable or as in the interests of the employees of the railway. The Master Car Builders' Association represents the interests of all who are running trains, and this association have enforced the use throughout the United States of almost every safety appliance that was necessary in the interests of. the employees. They are regarded as an association of such authority, that the law of most of the states of the union declares that what they endorse as a proper appliance must be used upon the cars. They have not approved of this side ladder.
